Not Fine In School: Family Support For School Attendance Difficulties

Not Fine in School is a parent/carer-led organisation set up in response to the growing number of children and young people who struggle with school attendance, including School Refusal. This struggle may relate to unmet Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (diagnosed or suspected), bullying, trauma, physical or mental illness.

School attendance difficulties are poorly understood, are compounded by current challenges within the education and health systems, and can have severe consequences for both child and family.

NFIS aims to support these children and their families, and raise awareness of their experiences.
